If your employer has withheld wages, holiday pay, a bonus, or other payment from you then this might be an unauthorised deduction from your wages.
We would normally advise you to raise a grievance with your employer about this in the first instance, or have your solicitor write to your employer, but if this fails or you don’t think it will work then you have the right to sue your employer at an employment tribunal for the lost wages.
You need to lodge your claim within 3 months of the deduction happening so it is vital you obtain expert legal advice as soon as you suspect you have suffered an unauthorised deduction from your wages.
At Livingstone Brown our team of expert employment lawyers can advise you about every stage of the process to ensure you are able to recover your money. Call us on 0141 429 8166 or complete our online contact form.
